LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock Fire investigators are trying to figure out what caused a Lubbock restaurant to catch fire Tuesday evening.

Fire crews were dispatched to the Harrigan's Restaurant at 50th and Memphis just before 7 p.m. No flames could be seen from the road, but some smoke was seen blowing up from the roof. Several fire trucks were on the scene and everyone inside of the restaurant had to be evacuated.

At this time, fire investigators haven't determined an exact cause of the fire, but the owner who was on the scene said he believed the fire may have started inside of a kitchen vent hood and spread into the attic.

Health Department officials are en route to the scene to determine the safety of the facility, as fire crews continue to clean up the scene and search for a cause.

Harrigan's is located within the Memphis Place Mall. Other businesses located within the mall were already closed for the day.
